Doubt about machine configuration

Good morning


I need to simulate a drying process of the parts produced in my model, however, I have questions about which object to use and how to give some characteristics to it.
There will be three drying stations that will have a limit of 25 pieces each. Parts can enter the station, but the drying process, which lasts 72 hours, will only begin when the station is full. Being complete, the station is closed and starts working with the 25 pieces.
Although there are three stations, I will use one at a time, that is, only when one station is full and in operation, that another station is released to receive parts.

 

How can I do this type of task?

something similiar for one (drying) station was discussed here :

Thanks for the reply, but it's still not what I want.
When a part enters the buffer, it starts to count the dwell time, however, I want it to be counted only when the buffer is full.

not if you set the dwell time to 0.0
